Feuerbach - Ask Us No Questions And We'll Tell You No Lies [SiS-06]


Published November 7, 2004
Topics Folk, Folk/Rock, Lo-Fi


Feuerbach come both from Genk, Belgium. This is their first release after a song on a Rarefish compilation Tree we fell in love with. But sadly after this beginning the band went on hiatus. That made us so sad that we started to ask them constantly for more songs. During last spring, they finally accepted to come back to life and to work on a few songs for us. It gave them energy, fervor and desire to let the band grow; Feuerbach is now more alive than ever!

These are pure indie pop folk melodies that will stick in your mind for long hours.

About the EP:

This EP is the result of two people messing around with recording gear, and instruments that happened to be available at the time. These songs were written while recording, so we didnt knew with what we would end up with. Luckily the result was a (more or less) coherent batch of songs. At first we wanted to experiment with electronics, but combining that with acoustic instruments and singing was too complicated for our lazy minds. (Although the last song is a result of those tries.) So we switched to the all-acoustic mode. Using acoustic and slide guitars, a banjo, playing on the drums with brushes, and soft singing all of that eventually resulted in some kind of folk/pop. Later on, these songs were completed with the help of some others.

About Feuerbach:

There isnt much to say, yet. Feuerbach, the recording project, consists of Felix and Rolf. For the past few months weve been deciding every week we would start rehearsing, to see if we could perform live with these songs. Each week there are other things that distract us. But eventually well succeed in our goal: the first band repetition. Feuerbach, the live-band to be, will consist of (you saw this coming) Felix and Rolf. But in their harsh task of bringing their music to the masses they will be joined by Nils and David.

A nice little EP comprised of four acoustic pop gems. This rather reminds me of something one might listen to while sitting alone in a loft watching it rain. Which, incidentally, is just what I am doing right now. Except I'm not in a loft and it's not raining. It was a nice metaphor while it lasted, though.

Much more than any other EP from the past 10 years in my memory. There's not a single element here that doesn't capture the essence of a sleepy, beautiful day.

I'm normally not very keen to enjoy this type of music, but the craftsmanship and plain beauty on display makes it hard for me to not like it.

I wish these guys would record more!

"A beautiful acoustic indy / pop song that will stay stuck in your head for the rest of the day, or longer. This track is from “Ask Us No Questions And We’ll Tell You No Lies”, an older release (2004) on Sundays in Spring."

This is a very nice collection of songs, reminds me a bit of The Kings of Convenience and similar acoustic artists. Mellow, laid back and just a great listen, I hope to hear more from these guys.

This EP is amazing. Plain and simple. And considering these guys only use english when they have too, it makes it even more stunning. Great tunes, great lyrics, just an all around great EP. Check them out at their web page and e-mail them, give them encouragment, let them know you like it...because I want to get more out of them...this is a DAMN good record.
